Pierre Jeanneret re-edition of the Counter Stool, handcrafted using material and techniques similar to the production methods used in the 1950s.

The Counter Stool has a solid teak seat with two metal rings - one at the foot of the stool and a smaller ring supporting the seat. The seat is gently hollowed to make seating comfortable. 

The metal rings are made of bright flat steel bars and have been fabricated using the hot metal rolling process that was commonly used in the early to mid 20th century. In this method, a flat bar of steel is shaped into a circle; and a weld is made at the point the two ends meet. The visible but inconspicuous inch wide weld grinding mark in the rings is due to this. The original patina of the raw material (which comes as flat bars) is retained to give the rings a weathered look. The screws used to fix the metal to the wood are also of the type used a few decades ago, although upgraded to a stainless steel.

Made in India from reclaimed or ethically harvested timber and cane.

SPECIFICATIONS

Materials: Teak (Tectona Grandis), Steel

H63cm x ø42.5cm

For the natural finish, the wood is sanded and finished with a hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of sealer.

PLEASE NOTE: This item is made from natural materials, which like all natural things will have variations in timber colour and grain pattern, and cane colour. Care is taken to ensure items ordered together have a similar aesthetic, however we embrace and celebrate the individuality of each item.

CARE + INSTRUCTIONS

This furniture is meant for indoor use. Sunlight, heat, humidity, and changes in temperature affect wood. Teak and cane are hardy and weatherproof, but exposure to moisture or direct sunlight will leave an impact on the finish. Keep your furniture away from windows, balconies or terraces that expose them to strong sunlight or rain.

Timber Care
Teak is extremely hardy and has high natural oil content, making it resistant to extreme weather as well as wood-boring insects. Here are a few suggestions to take care of your wooden furniture.

a. Oil / Wax your furniture
Teak gets better with age and its colour becomes richer and more intense. The wood used in our furniture does not require periodic oiling or maintenance. However, with exposure to sunlight or due to cleaning mops touching the bottom of the legs, the finish can become discoloured in a few places. Applying hard wax oil with a soft cloth can restore the finish. (Hard wax oil brands recommended by Phantom Hands are Kneho and Fiddes).

b. Clean up for more than dust
Loose dust along with years of settled dirt or sticky spots can accumulate on your furniture, so we recommend cleaning regularly. Clear the sticky spot with a soft cloth dipped in a solution of 4 parts water and 1 part mild dish detergent. Wring the cloth of excess solution and gently wipe the affected area until the dirt or stickiness dissolves. Next, wipe with a soft, dry cloth. Apply hard wax oil after if there is any discolouration.

c. Repair heat rings
We have all left a mug of something hot directly on the surface of our wooden furniture. In turn, these mugs leave behind heat rings, marks or whitish stains. To remove these stains, use a hair dryer. Simply set the dryer to the lowest setting and keep the dryer moving over the stains until they disappear. You can also place a towel or cotton cloth over the stain and run an iron on low heat setting over it for a few minutes. Check to see the state of the stains and iron again if needed. Apply oil after.
